It, um, seems to be over a month since I last posted. I regret to say that I've spent pretty much all of that time either sitting or lying down. Stopping the problematic medication seems to have returned my blood potassium to non-heart-stopping levels, but hasn't made a blind bit of difference to my knee, which continues to get worse. So for the last couple of months, I've had full use of exactly one limb, considerably limiting my activities. (I can't even hop everywhere, because that would rapidly leave me with no properly functioning limbs, and probably cause me to fall over a lot and injure myself elsewhere as well.)

Odd though it may sound, the problem with my knee is actually a major factor in my not posting. A couple of years ago I rearranged my desk so that I needed to stand to type, rather than sitting. Which was better for me, under normal circumstances - I both used more calories while at the computer, and was less inclined to spend ages doing something and then notice that my arms hurt. Now that standing is painful, it's less than ideal....

I'm currently (finally) waiting to be given an appointment for a scan, which is what I wanted from the beginning. Allegedly the typical wait time is six weeks, but we'll see what happens.

I'm sorry, that sounds pretty miserable. I hope you get your appointment soon.

Thanks; at least I live in a country that will (currently) give me that medical care for free, even if it can be a bit slow at times....

Bugger! That doesn't sound good at all :( But on the upside you appear to have a prehensile knob that doesn't ache after using it to type so something is going right for you ;-)

I've been trying to grow a suitably controllable tail (preferably stripey, but beggars can't be choosers), but with no success so far. So I'm just sticking to typing in very short bursts :)

I'm disturbed to read this - you have enough problems without your knee malfunctioning. Best of luck for the scan.
